While I haven’t painted for years, now preferring to do illustrations, I found painting very liberating. With no art training, or previous artistic experience, I fell into the vague category of Outsider Artist.
This extract is from my artist bio:
“I enjoy the space in which I work. It’s not a physical space, more mental. A space, that’s a void. Empty, so that anything can happen. I go into a work with only a basic idea of what I want to happen and the rest is up to the gods. All our lives we try and fit into everyone else’s idea of reality, however I’m just discovering how to project my own and then walk into it and wear it like a warm coat.”
As with all things, these painting are impermanent. Only one or two still survive.
